Have you tried the cd's on different computers or on a different cd drives? Ive had many issues with cd drives before, many times the reading laser and mechanisms fail and all sorts of strange things happen. In my experience not being able to read cd's on a CD drive or DVD drive is almost never a software issue, but acutally almost 99% of the time it is hardware related. I recommend to try those cd's on different machines. If they work on other machines its time to replace the CD drive.

My computer died. Had to buy new & went to Windows 7. Several CDs that installed programs on Vista and XP now won't load. E.g., Lotus Smart Suite displays "error accessing the system registry", then...


I have Win7 and am running Lotus Smart Suite 95 with no problem except for Approach which pops a message that I ignore.

Did you got to the CD and tell the install/start to run as administrator?

HP dvd740b does not detect blank CDs and DVDs


Hi,

i think you,ve hit the nail-on-the-head.
The laser has to power up highrer to write a DVD, or ocassionally have a dual laser. 1 for read/write CD. And 1 For Read/Write DVD.
Certain cd roms, only use CD- media. it,s probably worth checking which media is supported by the drive.
Also check the drives aren,t conflicting, on the same ide channel, sometimes swapping channels, ide primary/secondary can help, or swiitching Master/Slave/cable select jumpers on the drives Themselves.

Boot cd-rom type:cd-rom/non-emulation booting


No, it's because Microsoft changed the way boot CDs work with SP2. You need an old CD (Windows XP SP1). I had the same problem here, notebook without floppy, it won't boot from the newer XP version CDs (SP2 or SP3) - but an old SP1 CD works!
(Those were all original Microsoft CDs, and the SP2 / SP3 CDs boot just fine on several other PCs I tested. It's just that some old hardware has a problem with the boot mode used on newer Windows CDs.)

Teac DW-224E-c - cannot burn DVD's


The answer is what you profess. The drive can burn CD's, read CD's and also read DVD's. Everytime I try and burn a DVD I have an unrecognized drive and the properties always show no disk: The drive burns CD's ie;music, but cannot burn DVD it can only read DVD like you say!
